THE PARLIAMENTARY Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party would not make it into parliament if elections were to take place at the turn of October 2013, a recent poll has shown. On the other hand, the non-parliamentary Party of Hungarian Communities (SMK) would receive 5.5 percent, clearing the 5-percent threshold to win seats in parliament, the SITA newswire reported.
The poll was conducted by the MVK polling agency between September 26 and October 2.
Smer is still the clear leader, with 39.7 percent of those polled voting for it. Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) and the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) would receive 10.4 percent of the vote each, followed by New Majority - Agreement (NOVA) with 7.8 percent.
Most-Hid with 6.4 percent, and the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) with 6.1 percent, would also make it into parliament.
The nationalist Slovak National Party (SNS) would not garner enough votes to make it into parliament, with 4.1 percent, as well as the SaS with 2.7 percent.
More than 9 percent of those polled said they would not vote at all and another 23 percent did not know whether or not they would vote, SITA wrote.
